Synchronized Skating

Skate Ontario is proud to announce the launch of the Synchro calendar for the 2022-2023 season. The structure of the competition calendar in Ontario is based on Sport for Life and Skate Canada Long Term Development (LTD). Each stage of development has a focused set of principles that we have considered to maximize the growth and development of the Skate Ontario athletes on Podium and STAR pathways. A balance between appropriate event timing, number of events, training time and recovery time required for each stage was carefully planned in the design of the 2022-2023 schedule.

The calendar was developed as part of an Annual Competition Calendar Review in collaboration with a Synchro Coach Focus Group to ensure Skate Ontario is meeting the objectives for competitions in Ontario. For the full list of objectives for the annual competition review and Coach Focus Group, please click here.

The Annual Competition Calendar review included considerations regarding the Skate Canada Events Calendar, specifically with the introduction of Junior and Senior synchronized skating categories at Nationals in January.

It is important to note that based on the Skate Canada calendar changes, Skate Ontario’s Synchro calendar reflects and supports these updates. We have included important format updates for the upcoming season in bullet point below.
